Youth With A Mission Kosova has a YWAM base located in Pristina, the capital of Kosovo. With 37% of the population living below the poverty line, Kosovo remains one of the poorest countries in Europe. Approximately 95% of the population are said to be Muslim, however most of them do not live out their religion.
As YWAM, we long to serve the community, reflecting the love of God into every sphere of society. We want to see the people of Kosovo getting to know God, being transformed and brought into a new life with Jesus, full of hope and a God-given purpose.
YWAM Kosova is open for anyone who is willing to invest into the kingdom of God, to join us using his or her own gifts, ideas and creativity. We believe God will mobilize and send many more people to serve in this place that is ready for him. Kosovo is an amazing country and there are many possibilities for you to get involved in serving here. We are looking forward to hearing from you!

A Brief History of YWAM Kosovo
YWAM’s story in Kosovo started right after the war in 1999. An American couple pioneered the base together with other international staff, leading an Internet café, operating English classes and Bible studies, doing hospital and orphanage visitations and working together with churches and organizations in Kosovo.
In cooperation with other bases, YWAM Kosova sent several Kosovar students abroad to do their DTS of whom some came back and started doing ministry in their country. Throughout the years YWAM Kosova hosted many YWAM and church outreach teams working together with local churches and organizations to do kids ministries, evangelism and prayer nights.
We have seen God open many doors to enable us to reach people in Kosovo, meeting many people who are in search of the God who offers real life and hope.
